Doc hunts Nazi UFOs.
Byline: Chris Marzella
A retired GP-turned author from Dunblane has penned a new thriller about Nazi flying saucers.
Colin Barron's latest offering 'Operation Archer' is his ninth published book.
It is an action thriller in the style of 'Where Eagles Dare' and features a British commando mission to destroy Nazi flying saucers in their underground hangar in Germany during WW2.
Dr Barron contacted the Observer after reading our story about a mysterious flaming object flying in the skies over Kippen earlier this month.
He said: "Ever since I was 17 I have always wanted to write an action thriller in the style of Alistair MacLean, author of 'Where Eagles Dare.'.
"A chill ran down my spine when I read the story in the Observer, particularly as it described a UFO coming down in flames.
"My book features a scene set in modern times in which an RAF Eurofighter Typhoon shoots down a flying saucer with cannon fire."
r Barron formerly Mr worked as a registrar in ophthalmology at Gartnavel General Hospital and Glasgow Eye Infirmary.
In 1984 he and his first wife Sandra set up Ashlea Nursing Home in Callander and ran it until 1999.
The new book is available on Amazon and other internet booksellers.
